Mark and Lil won the first race with Stu and Andy in second. The Kelly's had mark trouble in the first race. They hit the mark and then got in Mark's way doing turns. They redeemed themselves by getting a first in the next four races.
Mark has two brilliant ideas that help make things a little better for his crew. His first is leading his jib sheets aft with a second turning block so they are out of the way of the seat and Lil can be more comfortable. What a guy.
On the left the sheet blocks the
seat and can be a real pain in
light air if the crew is sitting on the leeward side. The picture on on the right shows the lead aft and the seat clear.
